''Sheehan Represents ''Shrillness'' Democrats Sorely Need''

"George Will has some unsolicited advice for the Democratic Party. Tone it down and don't be "shrill" like Cindy Sheehan, if you want to win 2006 and 2008. It is a typical tactic Republicans use --attempt to cow the Democrats into disavowing their own. Thanks, but no thanks, for the advice Mr. Will.

Frankly, your advice is absurd and a recipe for another disaster, in a long string of disasters, for the Democratic Party. The"shrillness" that Republicans tag to Cindy Sheehan, is their mistaken perception of bravery and steadfastness. They mistake belief in ones cause and the rightness of ones actions, as being extreme and someone Democrats should "distance themselves from". Sheehan displays an attitude, a sureness, and an intestinal fortitude that the Democratic leaders sorely need, and that is why Republicans are so desperate to stifle it at its onset. Take for another example, Howard Dean. When he goes into Republican territory raising money for Democrats at an unprecedented pace, and chastising Republicans at the same time, the Republicans cry foul."-from the post on
